WONDERFUL, totally recommended! The guide tells you about the places you are seeing, including their history and myths. The views are wonderful, especially swimming in the crystal clear sea of Antipaxos and visiting the blue caves. The atmosphere that forms when you return is very entertaining, if you dare you can dance and laugh with everyone. We were able to enjoy the typical Greek dance! You will not regret!

Perfect day to Paxos/Antipaxos and caves under the september's sun, sea was hot, very good explains by the speaker, and great vibe on the way back with the DJ on the boat !

It exceeded my expectations. So so so worth it! And jumping from the boad was the best. Felt like a paradise trip. Oh and the party on the boat on the way back was fun!.

Professional, kind crew and guidance. Good value for money. The beach on Antipaxos was like paradise. Highly recommend this trip if you are staying on Corfu.
